Enhancing Healthcare Consistency with Oracle Health

akaBot Robotic Process Automation in the Financial Industry


Achieving seamless consistency among diverse systems is paramount in the fast-evolving healthcare industry. The goal is to enable various systems to securely share patient data, store it effectively, and ensure it is accessible to providers, patients, payers, and public health administrators. S-Square, a premier Oracle IT service provider, can assist organizations achieve this transformation by leveraging its expertise to implement Oracle Health Services.

Challenges in Healthcare consistency

Healthcare consistency faces several significant challenges:

Lack of Standardization: Different healthcare organizations use various Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems, which often do not communicate effectively. The lack of standardized protocols means that data exchange can be inconsistent, leading to gaps in patient information and potential medical errors. Without a unified approach, healthcare providers struggle to integrate systems, resulting in fragmented care and inefficiencies.

Data Security and Privacy: Ensuring the security and privacy of patient data during exchange and storage is crucial. Healthcare data is a prime target for cyberattacks, and any breach can have severe consequences, both for patient privacy and for the healthcare organization’s reputation and finances. Robust security measures are needed to protect sensitive information from unauthorized access and ensure compliance with regulations such as HIPAA.

Fragmented Systems and Data Silos: Many healthcare providers operate in silos, making data sharing inefficient and difficult. These silos prevent the free flow of information, leading to incomplete patient records and hindering coordinated care efforts. Integrating disparate systems is a complex task that requires sophisticated solutions to ensure all relevant data is accessible to authorized personnel when needed.

Budget Constraints: Implementing interoperable systems requires substantial investment and resources. Many healthcare organizations, particularly smaller ones, face financial limitations that make it challenging to adopt new technologies. Balancing the need for advanced systems with budget realities requires innovative solutions that can deliver high value at a reasonable cost.

Technical Complexity: Integrating disparate systems and ensuring they work together seamlessly is technically challenging. The diversity of existing IT infrastructure, varying levels of technology adoption, and differing data formats add to the complexity. Effective consistency solutions must address these technical hurdles while being user-friendly and scalable.

S-Square’s IT Solutions through Oracle Health

S-Square addresses these challenges through a comprehensive approach that includes the following solutions:

Standardizing Data Exchange Protocols: S-Square can implement HL7 FHIR (Fast Healthcare Consistency Resources) standards to ensure consistent data exchange across systems, facilitating seamless integration of various EHR systems. By adopting these standards, S-Square enables healthcare providers to share patient information effortlessly, improving data accuracy and patient care continuity. The use of standardized protocols also simplifies compliance with regulatory requirements and reduces the risk of errors during data exchange.

Enhancing Data Security: To address security and privacy concerns, we employ robust encryption techniques and secure data storage solutions to protect patient data from unauthorized access and breaches. These implemented multi-layered security measuresinclude advanced encryption algorithms, secure communication channels, and access controls. Regular security audits and compliance checks ensure that the systems remain resilient against evolving cyber threats.

Integrating Health Information Exchanges (HIEs): We integrate HIEs to facilitate the sharing of medical information across different departments and organizations, eliminating data silos and ensuring clinicians had access to comprehensive patient data. This integration allowes for real-time data sharing, enhancing care coordination and enabling healthcare providers to make more informed decisions.

Providing Cost-Effective Solutions: By leveraging cloud-based solutions and scalable infrastructure, we provide cost-effective consistency solutions accessible to healthcare organizations of all sizes. These cloud solutions reduces the need for significant upfront investments in hardware and maintenance, allowing organizations to pay for only the resources they use. The scalability of cloud infrastructure ensures that the solutions can grow with the organization’s needs, providing flexibility and cost savings.

Developing User-Friendly Interfaces: We create intuitive interfaces that allow clinicians to access and update patient records easily, reducing the burden on healthcare providers and improving workflow efficiency. The user-friendly design ensures that healthcare professionals can quickly adapt to the new systems without extensive training, minimizing disruptions to their daily routines. By streamlining the user experience, we enhance productivity and facilitated better patient care.

Business Impact of S-Square’s Consistency Solutions

The implementation of S-Square’s consistency solutions provide a significant positive impact on healthcare organizations:

Improved Patient Care: With access to complete and accurate patient data, clinicians are able to make better-informed decisions, resulting in improved patient outcomes. In emergencies, having immediate access to patient histories is crucial. The ability to view comprehensive patient records reduces the likelihood of medical errors and ensures that treatments are based on the most current information available.

Reduced Physician Burden: Streamlined data exchange and user-friendly interfaces reduce the administrative burden on physicians, allowing them to focus more on patient care. Automating routine tasks and simplifying data entry frees up valuable time for healthcare providers, enabling them to spend more time with patients and less time on paperwork.

Enhanced Care Coordination: Our solutions facilitate better coordination among care providers, reducing duplicate tests and conflicting treatment recommendations, thereby improving overall healthcare delivery efficiency. Successful care coordination allows all healthcare team members to access the same information, reducing the risk of miscommunication and leading to better patient outcomes.

Cost Savings: The consistency solutions help reduce administrative costs and inefficiencies. By eliminating redundant tests and streamlining workflows, healthcare organizations save time and money. The cloud-based infrastructure contributes to cost savings by reducing the need for on-site hardware and maintenance.

Empowered Patients: Patients gain access to health data through easy-to-use applications, enabling them to take an active role in managing their healthcare. This empowerment leads to better patient engagement and adherence to treatment plans.


The need for a successful installation

Our Oracle experience is critical to helping organizations realize the benefits of Oracle Health by ensuring a successful installation or migration if already using Cerner software.  This will require:

    • DevOps Expertise working with Infrastructure, Networking and Storage groups to define the build requirements to ensure performance needs.
    • Admin Support Expertise to avoid failure without the critical knowledge of both applications and infrastructure.  This includes setting environmental variables, installing middle tier software, dealing with weblogic, addressing module upgrades, database performance tuning, resolving issues with Certs and firewalls, ensuring backups are properly configured, etc.  These are just a few examples of specialization brought by our Admins.
    • Techno Functional and Development Expertise to set up workflows and perform necessary integrations with other applications critical to your environment.
    • Project Management Expertise to successfully define the implementation / migration / upgrade roadmap and deal with all the moving parts outlined above.

And after a successful installation, you’ll still need:

    • Techno Functional support
    • Admin and DBA support
    • Developer support

S-Square’s Oracle experience helps address all of this ensuring our projects are not just successfully completed but that the resulting functionality is successfully integrated and delivering expected value to the business.
